Generative Graphics Workshop. Drawing with code

Until 17 October 2015

The artist and creative technologist Alba G. Corral teaches this introductory workshop to the world of generative graphics through the use of the tool Processing. It is an open source programming language and integrated development environment based on Java, easy to use, and which serves as a means for teaching and producing multimedia and interactive digital design projects.

Goals :

• Obtain basic knowledge in the use of the Processing tool• Introduction to the first programming concepts • Have a basis to be able to delve deeper into visual or generative graphic creation • Learning the production methodology, use of network resources to resolve doubts, autonomous learning and group work to resolve problems problems and creation of pieces• Approach to visual code and digital art focused on “art code”
